Framed – with love

This visual documentation illustrates my holiday photographs taken in South Africa. I focused on a recorded conversation with visual artist, Sipho Mpongo, who kindly agreed to chat with me about his home country. He spoke of personal issues faced as a child from the so-called ‘born-free’ generation, this refers to all children born after South Africa got their independence in 1994.  Alongside the conversation with Sipho, I have posted my emails from my dear friend ‘Shoks’,  a South African writer I met on the last day of my trip.He too is a child of the born-free generation. His words, inspiring and encouraging, also provide an insight into the harsh and brutal realities of the country 23 years now in its democracy.
